The Official Transformers Game Facebook page has released more concept art from the game. The artwork includes Bumblebee (previously released) and the three Insecticons! Each design clearly has a heavy G1 influence, with the Insecticons looking very much like their G1 counterparts. Bumblebee looks like a hybrid of his G1 and "Classics" versions.

Toy News: "Unite Warriors" Galvatronus teased?

Takara Tomy designer TF Yuki has posted a teaser image of the "Unite Warriors" version of Galvatronus! Unlike the U.S. release of Cyclonus, this Combiner appears to have a group of Transformers teamed up with him! Based on the teaser image it looks like the sculpts used are two of the Aerialbots, Offroad (or Ironhide) and Rook! I'm very interested to see just what Takara has in store for us with this set.

With the end of 2015 coming fast, TF Yuki has posted an image of one of the last items coming out in Japan for the year: Devastator! There are some deco differences between the "Combiner Wars" version and the "Unite Warriors" version, but overall the two look very similar. The true strength of this set will be the addition of joints to certain individual figures and weapons for each Constructicon. Check out the photo in the embed below.
